Spurring from a tragic accident with life flashing before his eyes, Brian founded MiiR to create something bigger than himself. His goal was to fill the obvious need for a less cumbersome and reusable water bottle, while also making a difference in the world. Learn more about Brian’s story here.
The MiiR products are designed at the Seattle HQ and intended to be minimal, sustainable, functional, and enduring. The company is a certified B-Corporation, which is awarded to for-profit organizations that “meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.”
“As a certified B corporation it was important for us to be in a space which was designed with environmentally conscious intent and expression. We are in the Brooks Running building which is LEED certified and part of Living Building Pilot program. It has been touted as one of the most efficient commercial buildings in the nation.”
Each and every product includes a Give Code, which allows the consumer to see exactly where their $1 donation went and how it is making a difference. Check out their extensive list of projects!
Submaterial Water Bottles
Since we are a team of makers working in a high-end manufacturing environment, aesthetic and function are important elements. We need the ability to close anything we’re drinking from in our production spaces, and it is always a plus when we can stay on brand. We ordered the MiiR 20 oz Wide Mouth and had our word-mark engraved down the side. Each thermos was filled with Cocopotamus chocolate truffles in various flavors.
